Meanwhile, Trump is getting a tour of the new, heavily taxpayer-subsidized Foxconn facility in Wisconsin
A real quote from Trump: "We're passing so much legislation. Look what is happening with our Supreme Court."

(I'm not sure he realizes that nominating a SCOTUS justice does not constitute "legislation")
Trump, while bragging about himself, gets the facts wrong and claims that the only state Reagan didn't win in 1984 was Wisconsin.

That's false -- Reagan lost Minnesota.
Trump on his tariffs and trade war more broadly: "Frankly, the smart people love it. Some people don't understand it."

Fox News then cuts away lol
Trump's audience at Foxconn sits in bewildered silence as he rants about trade and Hillary Clinton. (He's supposed to be commemorating the opening of a new plant!)
LOL! Trump falsely claims that "we did repeal and replace Obamacare," but then adds: "Unfortunately, one senator decided to put the thumb down late in the morning, and that was not a good thing when he put that thumb down. But we've made up for it." #wut
Trump's usual applause lines are met with stunned silence and laughter as he gives a campaign speech at the Foxconn plant that's totally inappropriate for the occasion
Trump quips that his 2020 campaign hats might be green -- "representing cash."
Trump begs Harley-Davidson to change its mind about moving production to Europe.

"Harley-Davidson, please -- build those beautiful motorcycles in the USA, please, okay? Don't get cute with us. Don't get cute. They don't realize the taxes are coming way down. They don't realize."
Trump, citing @stevenmnuchin1's projections, claims that if he's elected for a 2nd term, GDP growth will be above 5 percent annually. #dohkay
Trump concludes one of the more awkward speeches he's delivered by describing the Foxconn plant as "the eighth wonder of the world"
President Deals literally begs Harley-Davidson to reconsider move to Europe thinkprogress.org/trump-begs-har…
'Please, okay?' During bizarre Wisconsin speech, Trump begs Harley-Davidson to stay in the USA thinkprogress.org/trump-begs-har…

TRUMP: "[Haley] has been at the UN right from the beginning, & worked w/us on the campaign...it has been a long time, very intense & she told me probably six months ago, 'you know maybe at the end of a 2-year period, but at the end of the year I want to take a little time off.'"
HALEY: "I'm such a lucky girl to have been able to lead the state that raised me and to serve a country I love so very much has really been a blessing, and I want to thank you for that... the US Is strong again. The US is strong in a way it should make all Americans proud."
Nikki Haley describes Jared Kushner as "a hidden genius that no one understands."

Trump on Hurricane Michael: "It's looking like it could be a very big one... good luck."

TRUMP on Rod Rosenstein: "I actually have a good relationship other than, there's been no collusion folks!"
TRUMP attacks Democrats over Kavanaugh process: "The way they tortured him and his family, I thought it was a disgrace. It was one of the most disgraceful performances I've ever seen."

He then lies and says "there was no corroboration of any kind" for Dr Ford's accusation.
TRUMP: "I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican because I have many friends that are Democrats. The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela...I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican on Nov. 6."

Trump is about to deliver a speech in Topeka. Follow me for a video thread.
TRUMP: "I want to thank our incredible Republican senators for refusing to back down in the face of the Democrats' shameless campaign of political & personal destruction... radical Democrats launched a disgraceful campaign to resist & demolish right from the beginning."
TRUMP: "If you allow wrong people to get into office, things could change. They could change fast. We will not let that happen. It can go very quickly. We cannot let that happen. You don't hand matches to an arsonist and you don't get power to an angry left-wing mob."

Ahead of @SenatorCollins' speech on the Senate floor, protesters chant "believe women!" from the gallery
COLLINS is using her speech to criticize opponents of Kavanaugh as "frenzied," "spreading outright falsehoods," and representing "special interest groups."
COLLINS: "The president has broad discretion to consider a nominee's philosophy, whereas my duty as a senator is to focus on the nominee's qualifications as long as that nominee's philosophy is within the mainstream."

It sure sounds like she is going to announce a yes vote.

.@ChuckGrassley, who is struggling to read a statement on the Senate floor, baselessly accuses @SenFeinstein of "shameful" handling of Dr Ford's accusation because she didn't violate Ford's wishes and make an issue of it immediately
Grassley flat out lies, claims Ford's accusations are "refuted."
Grassley, getting angry, says "resistance" in a very odd way, closes by urging senators to "say no to mob rule by voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh." #wut
